PTO Events

The Horn Parent Teacher Organization sponsors a variety of events through out the year.  The programs are a fantastic way to meet other parents in the community and stay involved with the school.  We also support and organize extra-curricular enrichment opportunities for students.

We love to hear new ideas for programs and events.  If you have an idea to share, please drop us a message using our on-line “Contact Us” form, or join us at a PTO Meeting.
